Edgard Tytgat (1879-1957)

Edgard TytgatBelgian painter, watercolourist and etcher. He received his artistic training at the Academy of Brussels under the tutorship of
Constant Montald in 1900. He started off painting in the Impressionist style under the influence of the befriended
renowned Belgian painter Rik Wouters. Gradually he evolved from the Brabant Fauvism towards a rather naieve
Expressionist style. During the First World War he left for England and worked alot on illustrative works. Tytgat
came back to Brussels in 1920 and started developping his style towards a very personal painter story teller, similar
to the intimist style of the French renowned painter Pierre Bonnard. Daily life scenery, circusses, village fairs,
folkore and common tales are dominating his oeuvre. After 1940, his palette became brighter and his technique
more loose. His inspiration shifts more towards religious and heroic tragedies. Tytgat became a dominant painter
of the naieve school due to the themes he used, as well as the technical looseness and simplicity of his oeuvre. He
was a member of numerous artistic groups such as "Kunst van Heden" in 1923, 'The IX", "Le Centaure" as well as
"Sélection". Many retrospectives were held in his honour of which the most important ones in Brussels in 1931 and
1951, in Ghent in 1971 and 1995, in Holland in 1951 and 1971 and also in Antwerp in 1996.

Tytgat was a creative perfectionist controling all the stages of the proces. It's amazing to see in which small numbers many of his printed work was published. He printed his own woodcuts in very typical bright colours and even printed the text with letters he carved himself. His work is a total experience of quality and artistic feeling.
